IEEE Approves IEEE P802.22b Amendment Project for Enhanced Broadband Services and Monitoring Applications Using TV White Spaces
PISCATAWAY, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
IEEE (News - Alert), the world's largest professional association advancing technology
for humanity, today announced that it approved the IEEE P802.22bTM
Amendment Project for Enhanced Broadband Services and Monitoring
Applications. With this new enhancement, the IEEE 802.22™ Working Group
proposes to bring advanced wireless technologies and applications to
rural and under-served areas around the world.
The IEEE 802.22 Working Group has established Task Group 'b' for
executing the activities for this amendment Project Authorization
Request (PAR). The new PAR aims to enhance the IEEE 802.22-2011 standard
capabilities to accommodate a wide variety of applications using
cognitive radio technology in Television White Spaces (TVWS). These
applications include long range and regional area smart grid, critical
infrastructure monitoring, triple play services like providing voice,
video and data, backhaul for broadband access, offloading cellular
telephony traffic, regional area public safety and homeland security
networks, emergency broadband services, monitoring rain forests,
monitoring livestock, and border protection etc.
IEEE P802.22b Task Group is making calls for contribution from
interested participants for the development of this standard. The group
begins work on this project from the March IEEE 802® plenary
Additional information on this amenment PAR can be found on the IEEE
802.22 WG webpage.
